In a heart-warming story out of Oregon, a 14-year-old named Hunter Powers got a very special Halloween costume. The costume comes from an organization called Magic Wheelchair, who build custom costumes for kids who are confined to wheelchairs.

Hunter was born with spina bifida and can't walk, something that his mother told Fox 12 in Oregon meant "he can't even get up to people's doors" when he has tried to trick-or-treat in the past. "Most people don't even see him." Enter Magic Wheelchair, formed by Ryan and Lana Weimer after creating costumes for their own children in wheelchairs.

While the Weimers made the initial costumes themselves, this one was made by a volunteer, a high school art teacher named Jeff Watamura who turned it into a class project. The end result? A personal S.H.I.E.L.D. Quinjet for Hunter to pilot for Halloween.

Other Magic Wheelchair projects in the works for this year include a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bus, a Mario Kart racer, and more.
